This eminently readable book explodes the prevalent myths that Che was a great thinker, a great man of the people, a great leader, and an all-around great guy. All of the facts presented are well documented and from reliable sources, and the truth shines from every page. Unfortunately, this very readability will probably keep it from the shelves of many college libraries, where it could conceivably have done some good-- liberal academics will undoubtedly object simply on the grounds that it lacks what they would consider proper gravitas. Still, if your children come home wearing Che t-shirts or other accoutrement, don¿t let them out of the house until they¿ve read this book.

South American countries have been fraught with powerful, rich elitist regimes since the Spanish Conquistadors. The poor are shamelessly exploited and the US has turned a blind eye on the atrocities. Moreover the US has consistently supported the powerful and the rich. Che Guevara wanted something better. Given the political climate, asking politely would not have been appropriate. Che Guevara is rightly held as hero and a champion of his people. To portray him otherwise is to ignore millions of indigent Americans and the sheer volume of tyranny he fought against. I felt vaguely dirty just reading this book.

    Finaly the truth

    This book finaly exposes the truth about che guevera. He was nothing more than a marxist murderer. Who deserves to be tossed upon the ash heap of history with Mao, Pol pot, Stalin and all of the other marxists. He definitely does not deserve to be idolized as a role model. Someone said he is a role model for the poor. What a joke! It is marxist idiology that keeps people poor in the first place! Commies are not cool.

    I am blowen away.

    Reading this book opened my eyes to an evil that others view as an idol. It is amazing to me that there are truly ignorant people in this world who have something positive to say about 'Che'. This book brings out the truth regarding this murdering coward. Outstanding book.

    A reviewer

    Che worshipers will hate this book, but they may also come to thank the author for freeing them from their delusions. Somehow, a psychopathic killer has come to be adored as a saint of sorts, and a hero, mostly by people who would have ended up in one of the concentration camps he set up for 'deviants', had they been unlucky enough to live in Cuba. Fontova does a marvelous job of unmasking the monster behind the myth, with great accuracy. If anyone doubts that Che worship is irrational, read the review posted on this B & N site which says 'Whether or not Che became a tyrant in his own right is frankly irrelevant.' Holy Smokes! I suppose if the same logic is applicable to Mao, Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot. Blind veneration of any idol is dangerous. Even more dangerous is the myopic double standard of those who condemn political and social oppression but revere Che. Fontova has done the world a great service by doing what all truly great historians do, which is to blow away the smoke and incense that envelops all idols and reveal the blood and guts on their altars. This book is not about Right versus Left, no matter what hostile reviewers might say. It is about human rights, and about the shallow hypocrisy that passes for political thought among those who revere Che.

    a very powerful book

    Che Guevara was Castro's main executioner, he is responsible for the deaths of many so called anti-revolutionaries, this fact is simply irrefutable. Read this book you will not regretted.

    Truthiness

    This book shows the reality of the murderer and hypocrite Che Guevara was. For the previous reviewer: The fact is you shouldn't open your mouth because you don't know anything about Che Guevara. All you know is the propaganda that has been fed to you. He didn't love his people, he used them to achieve his own selfish gains. The only thing you said that was correct was 'He wasnt a communist, a dictator, a conservative.' He wasn't any of those, he was a murderer. If you want to know the truth and not what the propaganda machine is forcing you to believe, then read this book.
